Abstract An insitu electropolymerization technique is extended to effect graft copolymerization on to carbon fibre matrix. It has been found to be possible to graft polyacrylamide on to carbon fibre through cathodic polymerization. The presence of grafted polymer on to carbon fibre matrix has been confirmed by weight increase of the product, scanning electron micrographs and IR spectral data. Conditions of electropolymerization have been found to influence the course of grafting reactions thus leading to the utility of this process in the modification of carbon fibre matrix for different applications
